10 Things No One Tells You About Weight Loss

You can’t exercise your way to weight loss. Your metabolism slows down when you lose weight. Your environment and food scientists are trying to get you to overeat. Your body will try to keep its fat stores. Even when you lose the weight, your body wants to keep the fat it has.

A late-night meal can spell trouble for your weight loss plan. It may raise your body temperature, blood sugar, and insulin, which makes it harder for you to burn fat. Try to eat dinner at least 3. Certain diseases or disorders can make weight loss extremely difficult, including: Lipedema: Believed to affect nearly one in nine women worldwide, this condition causes a woman’s hips and legs.

When it comes to weight loss, most of us have likely tried some sort of diet, in hopes of losing those unwanted pounds. You want to use a program that will work, something that you. The One Reason You Can’t Lose Weight First, you need to rule out medical conditions.

Certain disorders and diseases can make losing weight even more difficult. PCOS is linked to hormonal abnormalities which can cause fat build up in the abdomen and insulin resistance. Weight loss resistance is a description for an entire category of people who, due to certain physiological imbalances, are unable to lose fat through traditional methods of healthy diet and regular exercise. The causes range from thyroid malfunction to hormone imbalance, sleep deprivation to food intolerances or digestive imbalance, and more.

Each pound of fat you lose is 3,500 calories you either didn’t eat or else burned off with exercise, according to the Mayo Clinic, so it’s crucial to be honest for your journaling to be successful.Photo-tracking your food with your smartphone, using an app such as Bitesnap, can make it easy to keep track of those snacks on the go, as well as regular meals. You’re vitamin D-deficient. Vitamin D is actually a pro-hormone that is responsible for many of the body’s functions and without it, you can’t burn off fat. So ask your doc to check your.

But if you drop at least five percent of your body weight in less than six months—and you can’t pinpoint a good explanation for that weight loss—it’s time to let your doctor know what’s. A life-changing or stressful event can cause you to lose weight unintentionally. Even having an especially busy schedule for a while can cause a temporary change in.

The number one reason most people “inexplicably” can’t lose weight is they’re eating too much.

  • I know if I feel the cold I need to eat. I can set the clock by it. But after my 50’s I gained weight on the same diet and same busy life style. I was really stumped! But then I found out about hormones. I am now 70 and an ideal weight for my height so happy. I must admit always being thin to start with.

  • Are you including veges as carbs in this? I’ve been doing this for about 3 weeks now. To be honest, I love it. Only had a little little pasta 2 days ago. If 8 start craving, I just eat more protein or a full plate of veges in soy sauce or cheese. It’s more than I need, but I would hate myself more if I had carbs.

    Is soy sauce bad?

  • Hi Aaron, I am breastfeeding and I’ve heard that it can be hard to lose weight while breastfeeding. I’m on my 3rd week and I’ve barely lost any weight on the scale. Need some weight loss. Please advise

  • Okay, this is how stressful it is to be a teenage girl.
    Fyi this is just my experience:
    I know I’m not even overweight but I’m not as skinny as most of my peers either. They wear tight mini dresses and show off flat stomachs and slim legs. I can never wear what I want because of my own insecurities. Boys only want to date skinny girls and other girls judge you really harshly for being a bit thicker and talk about you behind your back if they see you in anything other than baggy clothes. My best friend used to be pretty much the same size as me developed an ED and she’s skinny now everyone compliments her but she still isn’t happy with her body and thinks she’s fat, never wearing tight dresses or anything without sleeves. I tried puking up my food when I was 12 but it hurt too bad to continue. I’m trying to copy what she’s been doing which is only eating dinner and doing loads of working out but I don’t have enough energy. I’m just really annoyed that I have to go through all this and naturally skinny girls have it so easy:/ sorry for the rant

  • High body fat will make low in testosterone, and that will make you age badly. i’ve seen a lot of depressed fat people but never know any fat people who depress when they getting thin.

  • When I lost 15 pounds in 6 months I started to notice lying down on my bed was uncomfortable, I would feel my blankets against my ribs and even the springs in my mattress digging in my ribs and it was extremely uncomfortable because I like to have blankets on at night.

  • The temperature one isn’t true it’s your skin and nerves that react to hot or cold it’s a signal to the brain like touching a boiling hot kettle you instantly get your hand away. It’s not weight it’s reactions how your brain wants your body temperature to be

    WITH AN ONION RING!!! Not funny?ok. But I wasn’t shouting ok!

  • I’d say you’d be more restless if you aren’t using all the energy you have from food and fat. If your diet gives you all the nutrients you need you won’t have any excess energy, and if you exercise you’re burning that energy and fat energy off.

  • Thanks alot for such a great video….

    Thousands across the globe are popping up left and right, filled with newfound self-esteem because they lost unwanted fat by following a simple, scientifically proven method…
    Even celebrities like Selena Gomez have tried the 2 Week Diet. She gives some well deserved credit to this fast, convenient, safe weight loss system.
    This diet program is not only making people drop 1-2 pounds of stubborn body fat DAILY…it’s also responsible for numerous people dropping 2-3 dress sizes, 2-4 inches off their waist, having flatter stomachs, and losing fat off their hips, thighs, and butt within 14 days.

  • Glad I found your channel.I started Keto diet 3 weeks ago and I was very excited and positive about my new life style.I followed the rules and I wasn’t mind giving up carbs and sugar.After 20 days my scale is stuck.Zero progress.So frustrating…Any advice?Thank you!!

  • I watched this thinking the worst like “no matter what you do, its all lies and you can never lose weight” or something like that lol eats chocolate bar

  • From my own experience I can say that loosing much weight (like I did, 15lbs in a week) can have side effects like addictions, not just speaking about alcohol or cigarettes, but the addiction of weight loss. As I’m struggling with bulimia and anorexia right now, I suggest exercise instead of not eating or vomiting.

  • Weight loss can affect facial appearance for the better-but-not so much when you get older as the weight actually keeps wrinkles from forming and your face from dropping.  But I have found how to reverse that NATURALLY with no creams or surgery: @ataU

  • 16 years ago I weighed 310 pounds and now I’m 125 pounds. I’ve kept it off, but it’s definitely harder to keep it off vs losing it! I loved this video!

  • Let me tell you something. So, I wrote down in a paper foods that I love and that I could eat many times. I wrote what each dish contains. I wrote the healthy things that were in there and I planned meals that I could cook with them. (You must make the food handmade)

    1 month after eating the only healthy things, I lost 15 klg!

  • I have shed around 17 pounds of my bodyweight immediately after I put to use this kind of diet system.It is miraculous to have a potential effect out of this. This works truly quick and I adore it. There is certainly a big difference on how my t-shirt fits at this moment when compared Six days before. Find a right program is not easy, you can discover by Google. Program’s name is under.

  • Hi, I am suffering from Diabities, thyroid and cholestrol….. can pls suggest which all of ur Videos will help me take care of all these problems….. ur videos are helping a lot in getting bk to gud lifestyle with gud eating habits

  • Keto has supressed my appetite to the point that I eat one meal every other day. Some days I just drink water, herbal teas. No Sugar! Eating food makes me nauseous now ��. I have insulin resistance and even though I’ve been exercising for three months I haven’t lost any fat, ����

  • I’ve used various low carb diets so many times over the years that I’m pretty sure my body is resistant to them at this point. I’ve had success with keto before, I know what I’m supposed to eat, I’m eating all of it and I haven’t lost an ounce in over a week.

  • Lost 7kgs in a month, from 75kg to 68kg. My waisteline drop from 35″ to 32″. I started exercising last week 6x a week base on a home workout app. I can see a bit of progress to my body. I don’t own a scale, but i measure my weight in a clinic before I started keto and just last week. Will definitely measure up my body size starting next week monday. Thanks for the tips.

  • i’m here because i gained 3 lbs since my last weigh in three days ago. i figured out it was physically impossible that i gained that in fat and i kind of laughed at myself. i haven’t even eaten enough calories to gain one lol. i’m beginning to measure myself TODAY.

  • I am so sick of the scale. I just pull out old clothes that no longer fit and just try it on once a week. If it fit better I’m shrinking..lol

  • There’s nothing better than finishing your day with a sweet and soothing red tea latte that’ll
    keep your metabolism burning all night long, right? So…
    Try out this delectable red tea latte tonight and let me know what you think…

  • Just yesterday I was checking out at a supermarket and the cashier asked what diet I was on. She went on to say she had lost 6 pounds on Keto in a month, she did not cheat, it did not work for her.The wight loss was not fast enough for her. Pointed her to you on YouTube, hope she followed up.

  • I’ve been doing keto for over 2 months now but only lost 4.5kg so far.
    As for weighing myself. I only do it every 2 weeks.
    What could I be doing wrong?

  • I had to quit keto and go back to low carb…I went from 12.9 bodyfat…to 15.3…lost 2lbs of muscle and gained 2lbs of fat according to INBODY test….needless to say I was very disappointed. I guess my body did not like that high fat content. I dont know if keto is good for someone who is already at a low bodyfat? I did it to see if I could get to the 10% marker. Im at 50 to 100 carb count now and I hope I can gain my muscle back…I have to say I regret I tried it…however I can see it working for some people.

  • Tried keto for a month and a half almost. I did see results but I basically hated my life. So I transitioned into low carb yesterday and I feel better already.

  • Ok, this is probably gonna sound dumb, but how do you do a double sided picture to see how well you’ve done? I have absolutely no idea
    Love watching your videos. I started on my keto journey this past Monday. Granite I haven’t noticed any big changes which I know is normal, but not giving up!! Went to the grocery store with my shopping list (And shopping isn’t something I enjoy doing at all), looked for the keto foods that I am allowed to eat, came home and OMGIOSH I am enjoying the different recipes. Love my bulletproof coffee in the morning drink fresh cut lemons in my water with a tiny bit of stevia for some sweetness. I have had to cut out all carbs, salt, sugars mainly because of how it makes me feel inside. I love breads, pastries, goodies but they don’t like me. Wrecks havic to my stomach and I pay for it dearly!
    Keep up with the videos for like I said, love to watch.:)

  • Hi, I am in keto around 7 weeks now, I am losing my weight very slowly, I have thyroid + I don’t do any exercise because of my back injury, but I am still happy because my health is much much better, special with the diabetes, start to be normal.

  • Hi. I just subscribed..
    Love ur work.. Plz help..
    I m 62inches nd 70kg ��
    …i want low calorie diet.. Nd some tips. Plzzzz reply

  • I have lost 19lbs in 4 in a half months since starting Keto. It has been a very slow but consistent process. You have to make the decision in your mind first that you are going to change your diet and lifestyle and then make the sacrifices that are required. Carbohydrates and sugar = fat. It is that simple and that complex. We live in a world that is loaded with carbohydrates, breads, pastas, rice-wheat etc.. and many of us have been eating this way for years. It has to be a conscious decision in your mind first before you see the results in your body. I have tried many diets before and have given up if I didn’t see the results within a couple of weeks to a month. I am over 40 years and my metabolism has slowed down. You have to be patient with yourself. Your body is adapting to a new way of eating from the way you have been eating for years. its a whole different way of looking at food and being conscious of what you put in your body. Its taken me years to get here and I am finally here. We have been brainwashed to think salt and fat are bad ( fried over-processed foods are still unhealthy) when it’s really the carbs and sugars that are the culprit. We have to change our mindset’s if we are going to make progress.

  • Everyone needs to put the scale away and trust the process. The scale doesn’t tell you what is going on inside of your body! This is a lifestyle and not a diet!

  • hello hi, i have a youtube channel and want to make videos like you but the problem is i do not have the same app can u tell me what u use. People recommend Imove but i do nothve any appel phone

  • Love the flex shot ��, this video was so helpful, my scale has been like a ball and chain around my ankle and it disappoints me all the time. So time to put it away, maybe………..I hope I can, I’ll try, lol.

  • I would like to know where is the scientific bas for all these because is just plainly stupid. I have been overweight for a long time time and I am the one who freezes to death every day of every winter and autumn. no matter how much fat I’ve got. brrrrrrrrrr

  • My friend was overweight and she lost of weight but then she started not eating enough and she got anorexia. It made her really depressed and she had lots of anxiety and panic attacks. She even tried to kill herself. Luckily, she survived but she’s not herself anymore. She hasn’t come to school since the beginning of October and her doctor said she was getting worse so she couldn’t to come to school. But recently, she’s been eating way more and doing well.

  • I am 60+ and there is a guy trying to get older people to buy his book and products. Is it true that keto doesn’t work for older people unless you do some magic thing that this guy is promoting (Get Lean After 40) When I started keto about a week ago, I was dropping pounds like crazy. Now, not so much. Is it true that keto doesn’t work for you if you’re older?

  • i have seen lik thousands of weight loss vidoes with nothing but brnadization & too much fancy stuff but girl YOU! have my heart <3 stay blessed.

  • Don’t u ever say anything bad about Samosa. I treat it as blasphemy. Other than that I will try to stay away from all the sinful eats that u mentioned..

  • I have had plateaus in weight loss on keto myself. But one day I read a story on dietdoctor.com where a guy in his middle years wondered why his weight hadn’t shifted on keto, but he went down two pant sizes in the meantime. He explained that your body composition is what’s changing, less fat more muscle. Not only is your food getting denser, so are you. Ha. So yeah, the scale is a horrible liar.

  • I as a college student, very hard to do my diet daily. can you post sometime about how student having a good diet to lose weight. I hope you can help me.
